WPF Image to byte[]


I'm trying to convert from System.Windows.Controls.Image to byte[] and I didnt know which method from Image class could help in this scenary, by the way I really dont know what should I do, cause in my LINQ model the field appears as Binary type, I have to change this if I want to save it like a byte[] type?

I found code posted here, but without using WPF:

Bitmap newBMP = new Bitmap(originalBMP, newWidth, newHeight);
System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
newBMP.Save(stream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
PHJProjectPhoto myPhoto = new PHJProjectPhoto {
    ProjectPhoto = stream.ToArray(), // <<--- This will convert your stream to a byte[] 
    OrderDate = DateTime.Now, 
    ProjectPhotoCaption = ProjectPhotoCaptionTextBox.Text,
    ProjectId = selectedProjectId

Real Solution... if want to save jpg images from an System.Windows.Control.Image when your database mapped field on your ORM is Byte[] / byte[] / Bynary

public byte[] getJPGFromImageControl(BitmapImage imageC)
       MemoryStream memStream = new MemoryStream();              
        JpegBitmapEncoder encoder = new JpegBitmapEncoder();
        return memStream.ToArray();

call as :

getJPGFromImageControl(firmaUno.Source as BitmapImage)

Hopes helps :)

I don't know how your Image is declared, but suppose we have this XAML declaration:

<Image x:Name="img">
        <BitmapImage UriSource="test.png" />

Then you can convert the contents of test.png to a byte-array like this:

var bmp = img.Source as BitmapImage;

int height = bmp.PixelHeight;
int width  = bmp.PixelWidth;
int stride = width * ((bmp.Format.BitsPerPixel + 7) / 8);

byte[] bits = new byte[height * stride];
bmp.CopyPixels(bits, stride, 0);
